The Historic Saltire Society is an organisation dedicated to two things: Living history and having fun!

From humble beginnings in Inverness, the group now has members from all over the country, and travel the length and breadth of Scotland to various venues to perform for our audiences. The society has many members, ranging from noble Knights and their Ladies, their squires and Ladies in Waiting who help put on their armour and kirtles and their enlisted peasants who end up doing most of the fighting and work!

As well as the nobles, we also have guilds of craftspeople (see left), showing early Scots medieval life through representing the Living History side of things.
